Notice of temporary closure Methodist Church of New Zealand Archives 1 June 2018-September 2018.
After seven years with the Methodist Church’s archives collection stored in a warehouse as a consequence of the Christchurch earthquakes, it will soon be moving into a purpose-built, environmentally controlled building, located at 54 Langdons Road, Papanui, Christchurch alongside the Methodist Church’s Administration Division building.
The Methodist Archives in Christchurch has always been the national archive of the Methodist Church and our new repository will also include records from our closed branch in Auckland.
We are closing for three months to move the collection and enable the Archivist and volunteers to unpack and arrange the collection ready for use.
The ability to answer written enquiries will be limited during this period and we will be closed to researchers until September 2018.
From September we will be open Tuesday and Thursday 1 pm-4 pm or by appointment.
